Description: B.T.'S Smokehouse is a dry-rubbed and slow-smoked barbecue restaurant located in the downtown section of Sturbridge, Massachusetts. Owner and Head Chef Brian Treitman is committed to delivering the very best barbecue to Massachusetts and beyond. Focusing on Southern-style cuisine, the menu offers natural grass-fed beef, chicken, pork, and other meats that have been dry rubbed and slow smoked for up to 24 hours with local apple and hickory woods. In addition to standard barbecue fare, the restaurant also offers more unusual entrees such as smoked salmon, chili made with brisket meat, and smoked turkey and chicken. We are also BYOB, so grab your favorite 6 pack on your way in. B.T.'S has won numerous awards since opening its doors, including the New England Regional Chili Cookoff and placing in the Top Ten Barbecue Restaurants in New England, and the Boston Globe named B.T.'S one of the "ten best places to bask in barbecue".

We had the tripel pig platter. One beef rib, half rack of baby back ribs, and paper tray of pulled pork and sliced brisket, all burnt on outside but tasty inside. Maybe dried rub was well carmalized, as did not taste burnt. Black beans, barbecued and pasty...good flavor but texture not so much our cup of tea. Slaw had a... More

My husband and I went here for dinner while staying at a motel in the area. Due to the huge amount of people there (on a Sunday night) we decided to get our food to go. The food was outstanding - best BBQ ever but the "sides" were also of a better quality and variety than those offered at restaurants... More

Went here for first dinner in Sturbridge due to reviews. Bbq was great, brisket was exceptional. A little disappointed to find no beer or liquor being served, but the price was right. It's a seat yourself place, and booths were a bit overused, but food made up for it.

You need to come here - the food is amazing - fresh, wonderfully cooked and the staff is awesome. The restaurant itself is quaint and comfortable and has become very popular since there is nothing like it in this area. Worth the stop if you are in the area ...

We were so very lucky when we went here. Somehow, we only had 2 people ahead of us in line. The place was 1/2 full when we walked in. While we were waiting, the register locked up! Lucky us! We had that much longer to smell the smells and really oggle people's plates (LOL!). We both wound up getting the... More

My Husband and I have been frequent diners at the restaurant for years, so this year when my place of business was looking for a caterer for our Family Day, I immediately suggested B.T.'s Smokehouse. It was not a hard sell! The menu choices are plentiful and Brian was so accomodating, I liked the fact that I was making plans... More

The place smells amazing of all the hardwood and meats that are cooked here. Byob for an enjoyable experience. The food and sides are very good. I recommend getting some jerky too.

Next door to our motel. We popped in for dinner. The girl serving could not have been friendlier or more helpful to two bemused tourists. Lovely BBQ food, tender pulled pork and ribs Very reasonable prices I cannot recommend more highly.

We heard it was the best ever... not so much! It was pasta noodles and the cheese was pooled underneath. Need to work on the right combo of cheeses to adhere to pasta better. Try sharp cheddar and Monterey Jack ( the fat cheese and the creamy cheese)
